They are independent of the switches.
It like a normal switched socket, the switch turns the plug supply on/off. The usb will always have a supply if plugged in. heat added

Those are LAP branded. I have had a LAP USB socket fail at just under 12months, and Screwfix were great at providing a replacement. Only 1 year warranty though. The BG ones have 30 years.

The BG ones I posted, are £11.99 each at Screwfix: screwfix.com/p/b…29p

Is there much difference or just the brand?

The brand and 29yrs guarantee difference.
Got a load of these when Homebase had that clearance sale. Easy to fit (just double and triple check you have clamped the cable down properly in the screw blocks and preferably cut the entire ring that supplies power to each socket as you work on them) and much more convenient than having sockets taken up with USB transformers.
So glad we've not yet had the usual warnings of impending flaming death we usually get on these sorts of posts.

Can anyone advise if the amperage of these is enough to fast charge a device? The USB sockets I have seem to take an age to charge a device, hence why I'm thinking it's an amperage issue
